A friend of mine asked if I would shoot their Christmas gift of a horse to their daughter. I found my way out to the site the day before to shoot some stock footage to use. The second day was the surprise. It was a special moment for everyone.

    yeah i agree, her reaction was a bit pathetic. i have wanted my own horse for 15 years, and if i got a surprise like that i would probably break down or something

    All of these videos are about kids who have already been around horses. Where are the videos about girls who really are surprised???

    @raigen93 it is extremely hard to do. You also have to think, are you going to want to stay up walking with your horse if it colics? I have spent more nights then I can count up all night with horses & it all costs. But even if expenses weren’t an issue, then what happens when you do go to college? I work a full time job to have mine here & it still didn’t happen. Just think about it, its a lot of work. Not trying to discourage you!! It’s sometimes a blessing to wait though!

    @raigen93 I saw your post on two different videos so far. I grew up with horses. I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a horse. They were never a shortage.. But to be fair, they do cost a lot. I know. I have paid for my own since 14, because after my parents divoce, my mom couldn’t afford to. I am in college, got my associates at a communtiy college. Now I am at Oklahoma State University, but my horses are still in Texas! Hardest thing in the world for me. My point is (cont.)

    @raigen93 I AGREE TOTALLY! My family has never had any interests in horses or farm animals even though they have lived in the country with lots of land for a long time. They think owning animals is a waste of money and they don’t see the joy it can bring to people like me. I’ve wanted a horse for MANY years now and still don’t have one. I hope when I move to my next house, then I will get one finally. My family has no idea the happiness and fun you can have with a horse. Sucks for them.

    @LoveForEquus I agree. To me she just comes off as a more quiet, shy girl. She is probably doing back flips on the inside :)

    @raigen93 I cried watching this video. It was about the age i got my horse (she passed away 2 years ago) My family and I are first generation immigrants, while they had exposure to horses in their youth, i didnt grow up around them. I wish we did have it on tape so I could show you :) (if you have not already) have you considered going to stables that train and also sell horses? Horses can in fact be expensive, but it also depends on what you do with them and what they need.

    Thank you, bigtxgirl! Lydia’s response is entirely appropriate to the situation.She is quietly joyful Many of you commenting fail to realize that stallions are highly sensitive, and appreciate peace and quiet, and gentle, friendly interaction. Lydia is clearly already a competent horse handler and a self-controlled young woman. She and Gamblin’ Man have established trust, I can tell.
